The outspoken Kelly – who owns a fashion public relations firm and has also judged on America's Next Top Model - didn't hold back when asked about Kanye's recent show at New York Fashion Week.

In front of a star-studded audience, the rapper debuted his new collaboration with Adidas last week.

Kelly, however, wasn't impressed…

She told People: "I think he's fine as a rapper. I think he's a joke as a fashion designer… I just think you should stay focused at what you're good at. Just because you're a good rapper doesn't mean you're going to be a good fashion designer."

Kanye, meanwhile, has said he doesn't listen to reviews of his collections…

He told Style.com: "I don't read the reviews, because it's some kind of backhanded compliment or something focusing on not the main point."

The star debuted his Adidas Originals line at NYFW last week, using sister-in-law Kylie Jenner as one of his models.

The whole Kardashian-Jenner clan was in the FROW, including his wife Kim Kardashian West and their one-year-old daughter North West.

Unfortunately, it was a little too much for North, who was pictured having a temper tantrum during the show. Kanye, however, laughed it off by saying perhaps North had just heard someone being mean to her dad.

We wonder what she'll do when she hears what Kelly Cutrone has said, then?!
